i dont see Party poker up there so i started a thread for it.
I havent played on it for ages. But in 2002 I was luck enough to win a seat to the 2003 WPT aboard a cruise. This was the beginning of the poker craze. It was filmed and shown on the travel channel and suddenly poker -- online poker especially-- was the thing to do!
PP is definately the father of online poker in my book.
